X-posting test by The Real Bev[_6_]
Thunderbird (free, hence frugal) has been refusing to originate x-postx recently, claiming that I can't post to different servers even though I'm attempting to post to two groups with the same server. I can follow up to x-posted messages, which are transmitted to all groups. I just can't...

Flat tire repair in a can? by KenK
Long ago I was with a friend when he had a flat tire while we were eating lunch. He used one of the flat tire repair cans to repair and reinflate the tire. Worked like a charm. However, I've heard that once this is used the tire is very difficult to repair, if required, in the future. If you've...

Skechers by KenK
We got a Skechers store here a year or so ago. First I thought it was an art supply store. Finally discovered they sell shoes. Tried Google for reviews but didn't find a general store-wide review, just specific shoes. If you've purchased there what is your opinion? Prices? Lots of choices?...

Does Walmart inspect your receipt when you are leaving the store? by John Doe[_2_]
Does Walmart inspect your receipt when you are leaving the store? The closest Wal-mart here does. They have been doing that for about a decade. Seems to me they should post a sign(s) at the entrance with regard to that, but they don't. I'm getting tired of it, planning to go out of my way to...
